What a good idea. It's about time people start standing up for progress and put all the opposition in it's place. Why not stand up for the American Way and build our country up instead of tearing it down the Obama way. We need common sense government and plans for this country to survive.

9:32 must drank a huge glass of the kool-Aid. I live right in the middle of this crap and it sucks. And just about everyone else who lives around this chaos would rather it stopped.

Sorry, 8:47. Without further description readers are left unsure as to what you are referring to as "crap". Could it possibly be increased traffic in the form of heavy vehicles? Are you sure they aren't log trucks, or lg. delivery vehicles headed for stores, car dealerships, or slow-moving school buses and farm equipment? They're on the road too!
May-be the "crap" in your area is the terrible havoc and muck caused by new construction. When Adelphia brought progress to the region there was a lot of new construction. Were you smiling or grousing then? Argue and fuss more when you can explain how you have OGM's but have refused to lease because ...

Threatening our water sources,degrading air quality and the environment,while allowing the industry to create huge environmental disaster areas,is not the "American way."
The mess left by the industry is currently exempt from receiving federal superfunds.

The disaster areas being created, such as the 4+ mile long environmental disaster area ... The Fisk Hollow site in Pleasant Valley,was once State Game Lands 59.

The industry has been allowed to destroy the game lands with no
real plan in place to remediate it's destruction.

We need to hold the companies responsible.
"The American way"
We need to require funds to be put in escrow to be used toward remediating our land.

"You break it,you fix it".
We need to hold the industry accountable and ensure funding will be there when the gas is gone.

We need to learn from the Adelphia ordeal and put in place a plan to fund the cost.

Since our state has failed to address it, we need (commissioners) our local government to step up to the plate.

If these company's funds are mismanaged and they go the Adelphia way,we need funding for environmental monitoring and cleaning up the mess they left us with.

One thing our state and local government (commissioners) did get right...job creation.

With adequate funding,the monitoring and remediation of these sites has the potential to create jobs for generations.

BTW, The horse and bike trail along the path of destruction in what used to be State Game Lands 59 is still open.
Visitors are welcome on Sundays, hike in on Monday-Saturday!
There was recently a 38 barrel "leak" of fluid around a casing and another well is currently being addressed for a "bubbling" issue so use caution!
